Time to read the rules of the road. It is that time of the month. So let's MASS UP! …and for VICTIMS of this; some things you can do, suggested by EZ Biker!

FotoFlexer_Animation

Needless to say, once again… I have NEVER been a supporter of any Critical ASS er I mean Mass events! Fill free to search my site for more links like this. Pissing off motorists by impeding their right of way, just continues to be a MONUMENTAL FAIL in my book! So a certain Facebook post…, has me putting together some serious ALTERNATIVE suggestions on what you should do, if you become a VICTIM lunapic_135915899768161_2in one of these ANTI-Bicycling events. Thumbs up  If you should find yourself at an intersection and all of a sudden a cyclist (Who will usually be friendly and smiling) gets in front of your vehicle and holds his hand up, nicely asking you to stay put; they are basically corking you. Keeping you from crossing the intersection, while bunches of cyclists roll pass, even when their light is red. (A common citizen does not have the legal right to stop or imped you entering through an intersection, especially when you have a green light)

Politely ask the cyclist to stop blocking you immediately. If they persist, try and get a photo of them with your cell phone. Contact the police and advise them, you are being held against your will by someone. Try and give the exact location of the incident and possible the direction other cyclists were going (If you in fact observe numerous cyclists passing front of you and that are running through their red light. Hopefully law enforcement will respond, ticket them and / or arrest them! Critical Mass events do NO GOOD for lunapic_135915899768161_bicycling PERIOD! lunapic_135915899768161_1

OT–Artists(?) that Lip-sync… SUCK!!! :-@@@

image

OK, I'm going to wade into this latest controversy concerning the Beyoncé lip-sync fiasco.beyonce2

Back in my DJ days; this form.. of "FAKE" entertainment was the THING back in the 80's and that's exactly what it was, "FAKE". Thumbs upI'm astonished that a so-called high profile singer would resort to such a SKANKY tactic, especially when it's done at an event, showcasing the United States, in front of all the World and of course for our countries so-called... leader. This is just PURE NO CLASS whatsoever and possible FRAUD committed towards the American people, if in fact this person was monetarily compensated in anyway. If you don't have the BAL... or nerve lunapic_135898321630347_1to do it live; you should do everyone a favor, and PASS ON DOING THE JIVE! So to anyone that does not see the PATHETIC issue in this, I pose the following question: If you knew for a fact that an upcoming (HIGH PRICED ticket cost for you) performance by some BIG NAME singing star, would be all lip-synced; would you still pay for and attend that performance? lunapic_135738704623177_20A simple "YES" or "NO" answer... PLEASE!  lunapic_135898321630347_2

So... the TRUTH has finally come out...

FotoFlexer_Animation

I have for the longest time admired and supported Lance Armstrong. I have railed against those that had continuously accused and badgered him; but refused to follow due process and allow him to have his day in court. I still assert that belief that a person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, by his peers! However, that person has subsequently came fourth and admitted his misdeeds lunapic_135829900565697_9and for that I still admire him for his courage to own up to his misdeeds. As a cancer survivor, I will continue to (Likewise) admire him for his achievement in that arena as well. I truly wish him subsequent success in whatever endeavor he chooses to pursue, as long as it's not affiliated with bicycling. Lance Armstrong (IMHO) is now... (SADLY) the Pete Rose of Baseball lunapic_135829900565697_11and this is the unsavory collateral, he will have to endure for the rest of his life. One would hope that LESSONS are learned from these debacles; in that CHEATING is never the right choice to make, in anything done in competitive sport or in day to day living.

BREAKING News! WHY! I don’t ever want a “Carbon Fiber” bike! :-OOO

Broken Carbon CO2

EEEK! I WANT my MOMMIE!!! lunapic_135810174424657_9 My good Friend and Ultra cyclist John Preston gave me some insight to the recent Jupiter 200K brevet and also mentioned a “BROKEN bike incident that had occurred during the event. OMG! It was a broken BENT frame! Surprised smileThe story I heard is that apparently the bent cyclist had previously had an unfortunate encounter with a dog Dog faceon the road in an earlier ride, which had initially messed up his front fork. BUT… there was MORE damage Surprised smilethen he realized. Fortunately the “BREAK” happened while he was making a casual turn and he basically sagged down between the bike frame. As I complete writing this, I’m walking over to my Beloved Ti Aero Frame and giving it a BIG HUG!!! lunapic_135810174424657_11
